Eloise is the first daughter of a friend of mine — they call her Lou for short! After she was born, I asked my friend for the details of her birth — the date, time and her measurements. I included her birthstone and a couple of her astrological placements in the border surrounding her name. The flowers are snowdrops, flower of the month for January. I used Arches watercolor paper for this piece. I really enjoyed the opportunity to practice with decorative capitals and illustration.
